INCI Name: Carbomer 980

Properties: Quick dissolving, ph-sensitive gelling thickener useful for formulating clear gels as well as stabilizing emulsions.

Use: Typical use level 0.1-0.5% depending on the type of formulation desired viscosity. Must be mixed and hydrated but requires much less stirring and dissolves much quicker (<10 min) than regular carbomer. Increasing the pH to >6.0, gives a gel structure. Neutralization can be carried out with inorganic bases such as NaOH or KOH or triethanolamine (TEA). For external use only.
